DPH Distribution Process for Participating Vaccine Partners

The Delaware Division of Public Health COVID-19 vaccine request process is now in operation for enrolled vaccine providers. To order the vaccine for your patients, please follow the instructions in the following links.

Important DelVAX Reporting Reminder

Governor John Carney issued the Sixth Modification to his Omnibus State of Emergency Declaration last week, which among other things requires Delaware vaccination providers to report to the Delaware Immunization Information System (DelVAX) complete demographic information within 24 hours of administering a vaccine.
 
The modification also requires health care providers, pharmacies and other entities that provide vaccinations to offer the shots free of charge, though insurance information may be collected.

Enrolled vaccination providers must follow eligibility criteria in Delaware's COVID-19 vaccination program, as defined by the Division of Public Health (DPH). Failure to comply with data reporting requirements may result in fines for providers and reductions in vaccine allocation. Read more.
